Dr. Barbara Larsen was instrumental in saving the life of my male cat Loverboy, who got bobcat fever. She cared for him and administrered all the right meds from morning til evening for 5 days.
She is a caring, healing angel, and no doctor out there is better with cats.

Thank you, Dr. Larsen and staff from the bottom of our hearts.
Loverboy is doing great!!
God bless you all ~

All Cats Clinic is wonderful. Bobcat Fever is fatal almost half the time. If you get your cat in early, there is a better chance.

2 weeks ago, on a Sunday, I realized that my cat, Pye, was missing. I found her, hiding. She became feverish. At about 9 PM, having heard of Bobcat Fever only a week ago from a friend, I took her to the Animal Emergency Clinic in Springdale. Her fever was 104 at admission.

Monday morning I picked her up before 7 AM--AEC does not operate weekdays. They confirmed Bobcat Fever. She seemed worse. The told me it was early, so she had a chance. I took her to All-Cats in Fayetteville, AR for the day, for IV support and more tests. Monday night, when I picked her up at All-Cats, just before 6PM -- no 24 hour supervised intensive care here either, she was very sick. Her temp had dropped below normal, a bad sign. But, she was keeping down syringe-feedings.

I got her back to the AEC in Springdale for overnight. We stayed with her there for a little while. But, she was very sick, and didn't seem to "see" me when I tried to make eye contact. I called about 10:30 PM, and they said that she had licked up some food that fell onto a towel, and that she was pretty stable.

Tuesday morning, we were happy to find that she was somewhat talkative, cleaning herself a little. Sometime between 4 and 5 AM she had eaten 9 bits of her kibble. Her temp was still low but better. When I left her at All-Cats, she turned and meowed at me. She made eye contact.

Tuesday at 6PM at All-Cats, we were shocked to learn that her temperature had dropped, and the lethargy had returned. She had a seizure. They said AEC could do x-rays and blood tests.

Wednesday morning, at AEC, I learned the doctor had discovered fluid buildup in her lungs and around the heart. They had withheld the IV overnight, and used subcutaneous fluids instead for dehydration, and she had gotten better. She ate more, and by the time we picked her up Wednesday morning, she was making eye contact again.

It is now Sunday, two weeks out from the first trip to AEC. She had 24 hour care for about 5 days. She has made very slow but steady progress. She sleeps a lot. But she is going to be ok. Right now, as I write, she is crunching happily on her food, next to me. She has been running a little, and playing a little. She is getting stronger.

AEC and All-Cats saved her life, as did the friend who told me about Bobcat Fever. I am writing this to thank them, and to inform others. Don't give up before you have to. More and more Bobcat Fever sufferers are surviving.

Also, spread the word in NW Arkansas, especially Elkins and West Fork. Cat owners should be on the lookout for hiding behavior, fever, not eating, and lethargy. The sooner you get your cat in, the better the chances. Do not wait. As for the cost, if you only use AEC at night, and you get a pass from All-Cats, the cost will not be that bad, and they will inform you of it ahead of time.

Thank you to all the staff at Animal Emergency Clinic in Springdale, AR, and at All Cats Clinic in Fayetteville, AR. Pye is doing great! She sends her love (meow!).
